First Crush! Prelude to the Grape Escape

Thank you to all of the guests who attended First Crush! Prelude to the Grape Escape on Saturday, August 25, at Mercedes-Benz of Melbourne. Thanks to the community's generous support, the Health First Foundation was able to raise over $18,000 for Cardiac Services at Health First.

"First Crush!" was introduced this year as an added feature to our annual Grape Escape Fundraiser - now in it's 11th year.  It was an exciting opportunity to sample fine wines from around the world along with delectable foods prepared by top restaurants in Brevard.

Proceeds from the Grape Escape and First Crush! will be used to purchase new high-tech imaging equipment for the Heart Center at Health First Holmes Regional Medical Center.

We would like to thank our amazing and generous sponsors for their participation in First Crush!
